These Mini Treat Bags are so fun and have so much potential! They could be made for kid's classrooms, teachers, or even a spouse. The hearts on the front are a wide open canvas to add your own personal touch with fabric paint, patches, surface crochet, or whatever your heart desires.
If you're like me, you don't like to give out candy, so here is a small list of some things that will also fit inside:
1. Fruit Snacks
2. Lip Balm
3. Deck of Cards
4. Gift Cards
5. Mini Notepads
6. Ring Box
I also tried it out to find that 5-6 Clover Amour crochet hooks fit inside in case anyone is looking to send me a Valentine ;)
